Crime--Is it Really That Bad?? - Rio de Janeiro Forum
The most common forms of crime in Rio affecting tourists are pickpockets and street muggings. In the past, the security risk was higher than it is today and police protection has improved significantly in the Zona Sul (Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, Lagoa, Jardim Botanico) and Barra da Tijuca in the last two years. Today, although the likelihood of experiencing crime in Rio has diminished, it still exists.
